Six years hard labour for man accused of robbery with violence

A 22-year-old Arouca man has been sentenced to six months hard labour, after he plead guilty to allegations of robbery with violence.

The accused, Wendell Douglas, of Davis Street, Arouca, was arrested following allegations that he robbed an individual on August 21.

During the incident he allegedly assaulted his victim, by hitting the individual repeatedly.

Investigations were launched by officers of the Arouca Police Station, and PC Ali, under the supervision of Sgt Ammon, were able to detain the suspect some time later.

He was placed on identification parades, where he was successfully pointed out, and brought before Magistrate Debbie Ann Bassaw in the Arima Magistrates’ Court this week.

Douglas plead guilty to the offence and expressed remorse for his actions, however, due to the serious nature of the allegations – that he used violence against his victim – he was given a custodial sentence.
